The Empire of Otogal is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 480 million Otogalians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kilonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.3%.

The all-consuming Otogalian economy, worth 55.2 trillion Cacaos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 114,963 Cacaos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 348,537 per year while the poor average 29,487, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

There is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Otogalian military, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and citizens must pay to enjoy Otogal's pristine beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Otogal's national animal is the Red-backed kingfisher, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Otogal is ranked 61,484th in the world and 261st in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Pro-Market, scoring 51.44 on the Rand Index.
